Horrible experience!! Stay away.

We came to check in at 4 PM and the office was close. We has a wedding to attend so we left. The worse room we got, on PCH, traffic noise and horrible curtains, we did not sleep all night. The next day she messed up our check out. Horrible, un professional . I would never go back!

No Towels & No Night Manager

So "No Towels & No Night Manager" pretty much sums it up for us!!! My husband & I checked in at 3:PM, with no time to do more than peak our heads in the room for a quick look and then head out for meetings, we didn't go into the bath. We returned to the room just after 11:PM to find that they had not stocked our bath with towels, just 1 wash cloth & 1 hand towel. There was no Manager to speak to because they close the office at night & don't reopen until after 9AM. The sign on the office door says call 911 in case of an emergency. At check in they didn't make us aware of this. There was no maid on-site to get towels from either that night or the next morning. The next morning after showering my husband and I had to dry off with the hand towel and pillow cases!!! We left by 8:15AM for our meeting and then drive back to the desert, so we couldn't wait for the office to open at 9AM. We had no problems with the room appointments. It was a modest boutique motel in a great location. It was clean, sparse, there was a rolling rack to place clothes, but the bed was a bit hard. We only stayed 1 night. The next day I called the Motel Office to discuss this. The girl that answered said "oh, we did have problems that day with our towel delivery service".....really! I then spoke with the manager & expressed our frustrations. He apologized and said that they will issue a partial refund, but they had to keep $50+ to pay their direct expenses....hmmm!!!

The restaurant at the end of the Malibu Pier serves terrific healthy food with great selections made from local produce. We are vegetarians and had a wonderful meal and lots of choices!!!

DON'T STAY HERE!

This place is a dump!! No A/C; hot, stuffy room, no closet, extremely uncomfortable beds, one hand towel and two stained bath towels for two people, and when we called the front desk to ask for additional towels, no one answered the phone - therefore, no towels. It was noisy (staff, other guests, and people coming out of the cigar lounge next door), not well-kept, and the staff was rude. Good thing I had only planned to stay for one night, because I would have cancelled the remainder of my stay. I would NEVER stay here again and would NEVER recommend it to anyone.

A Bit Expensive, But Overall It Worked Just Fine

Stayed here on a Saturday night in April. The girls at the front desk were nice. Room was nice, clean and modern, with hardwood floors and nice tile in the bathroom. Bed was OK....a little hard and springy, but passable. The noise from PCH directly below was a distraction at first, but then just sorta became white noise. The comments about the thin-ness of the walls though seemed right on -- there can't be much sound-dampening in there at all. Since I was only staying a night and the neighbors weren't particularly loud, this wasn't a big deal.
